In my personal experience, it's hard to beat a PC for real-world problems, including graphing. However, compared to a laptop, a new HP 49G+ (wtih ROM 2.00) is very hard to beat (and there is no more keypad problems with this update). I never use mine for graphing anything, but enjoy the larger screen for viewing more information, larger equations, matrices, etc. For those who use it primarily for games, what a waste! They're okay for airport terminals, etc. when you need to pass the time. For anyone interested only in a full-on effecient calculator experience, I believe that it's hard to beat one 49G+ and one 33S (or other Pioneer suited to your work or preference, e.g., 20S, 21S, 22S, 27S, 32S, 42S, etc). The "stretch" Pioneers (48 series) may have been on top for a long time, but I believe the 49G+ will be a better model in the long run due to sheer speed, memory, and better CAS, oh, and not to mention far better screen resolution.
